100% is a unique programme for young people aged 14-25 to gain professional producing, event management and performing skills. Many of our past members are now working in the music industry or performing professionally!
Get involved as a producer
Our 100% producers are a group who design and manage arts events throughout the year, meeting at Harrow Arts Centre every Thursday evening from 5.30pm – 7.00pm. 100% set their own goals and targets to create performance opportunities for other young people, supporting local emerging artists. Events can be part of regular series’ or one-off gigs and open mics. They have programmed stages for festivals, events in shopping centres, workshops, exhibitions and more.
I became involved in 100% in February 2012 after attending a regular 100% gig in the studio in HAC. Until then I hadn’t realised much happened in there so for me, I wanted to become involved to fine out more about organising music events as I absolutely love live music and gigs. Personally however, I am interested in design, which is one of the subjects I have taken now in my first year in St Dominics, so for me, 100% is useful as I also have the chance to work on my Silver Arts Award which I completely enjoy as it never feels like hard work and gives me the opportunity to meet new people and talk to professionals! – 100% Producer
100% are working towards Arts Award Bronze this season, there are also opportunities to work towards Silver and Gold. See our Arts Award page for more information.

It’s really great, its great, I performed at another 100% previously, it’s great fun, its always a nice crowd to play to! I’d definitely play here again. Its good that is it actually organised by the youth of Harrow. Its get people who want to find good music, it gives them somewhere to go, they don’t have to travel far. – Performer
